Ww


(a) Buzz-Word – This is an idiomatic phrasal-noun slang term for…  slang terms.  So what’s the difference?  Well, the word “Buzz” is often used by the type of pseudo-news reports and journalists (not that they are pseudo reporters and journalists, but that what they are reporting and writing about is pseudo-news) to refer to what everyone is talking about.  So if the “Buzz” is what everyone is talking about, then a “Buzz-Word” is some new (usually stupid or ridiculous) slang term which is probably WAY over-used, meaning that everyone will get sick of it and (hopefully) it will die out and never become the kind of slang term that I would put on this website…  Some examples:  “That’s Hot” – started by Paris Hilton, “Terruh” – started by George Bush Jr., and just about anything you see on Twitter, or the comments on Face-Crook and YouTube.


(a) Weasel – A weasel is a cute fuzzy animal who really likes the taste of chicken’s eggs (don’t we all?)  But because of this, farmers (people who keep animals locked up as prisoners, rape them for their milk and eggs, and force them to produce offspring against their will, only to eventually be slaughtered and eaten) don’t like them very much and consider them to be terrible animals who are worthy to be slaughtered (farmers like to do that) simply for a minor inconvenience.  So when the word weasel is used as a slang term, it is meant as a derogatory term for a person who is dis-honest, does terrible things and generally can’t be trusted.  This of course is an insult to real weasels as they are very intelligent creatures who are simply trying to provide for themselves and their children.


(to be) WishyWashy – This is an idiomatic phrasal adjective that describes the state when one can not seem to make up his or her mind about some matter, or that the person does not take a stand on a certain matter.  This is usually done because the person lacks a certain the strength of character…  “Our manager is so wishy-washy!  I really can’t understand how we are supposed to get anything done here when he can’t even make a single decision on his own.”  –  (See Also:  “Make Up (one’s) Mind”, “Take A Stand”, and “Strength Of Character”)


(to be) Woozy – This slang term is used to describe the feeling of being both a bit dizzy and a bit nauseous.  This is the kind of feeling that some people get after riding on a roller-coaster, others from riding in a boat.  Some men feel this way when finding out that they are going to be a father, and undoubtedly many other people around the world would experience this sensation if they were to find out that Hillary Clinton was to be the next President of the United States.  svomit_100-121
